Fighting StyleEdit

Due to his immense strength, Xu Zhu carries around powerful, heavy weapons, which results in stronger attacks that take longer to perform. His main moves involving simple strikes to opposing officers, although he often uses attacks that pound the ground and knock down all of his surrounding enemies.

However, a notable weakness of his happens to be both his slow running speed, and his musou being hard to set up juggles with. His musou is one of the strongest in the series if used right on a juggled foe, being able to take out much of a general's health if most of the hits connect on them properly.
